Just one year after GE Digital announced it was expanding its Predix Internet of Things (IoT) platform to the edge, the company is adding more edge capabilities and introducing a private cloud.The company admits that IoT complexity is still preventing many companies from moving beyond the pilot stage with their IoT programs and into full commercial deployment. To that end, it is working on capabilities that will help streamline IoT deployments and make companies more confident in the Predix platform. The new Predix Edge capabilities include adding analytics that will securely capture, process, and analyze data at the edge and also manage that data locally. It also added support for data storage in remote environments when the Predix platform is offline or only has intermittent connectivity.
